you must be a reader [poem]

you must be a reader
to love me the way you do
there are things you can only learn in realities
where love is magic and magic is everywhere
words will guide you
storytellers you love will clear the path
between us
it’s easy to love a reader
references flowing back and forth between us
books trusted to one another
like previous treasures
when I hand you a poem
or point you to a favorite story of mine
I’m saying
here’s a piece of me
wrapped in pretty words and colorful imagery
trace your fingers over my heart
and memorize this sweet chapter we’ve started
